The Hollow is Happening

Some things are coming back to normal.  A good number of restaurants are now open with pubs soon to follow.   Most retailers seem open to some extent and we’re starting to see traffic picking back up.  Today we had lunch at a restaurant/brewery in Deland – The Half Wall.   We hadn’t been there for several months and decided to give it a try again since they had plenty of outdoor seating.   I popped my head in the door and spotted people holding brewski’s which I thought had been outlawed.   Turns out that bars, per se, are not allowed to open but restaurants can serve and offer beer.   We checked into Persimmon Hollow and found that they can serve a beer but you have to consume it outside.   Not a giant problem since there are several alley’s with tables and canopies.  So between Half Wall, Persimmon Hollow, and the Elusive grape – plenty of libation opportunities.   

Breaking news – Persimmon Hollow is now officially open for business.  Turns out the taco place across the road is owned by the same people that own the Hollow.   When last we checked, the Hollow was classified only as a brewery and you had to go there to get a take out brew then eat it at the taco place.  Now, as before all this nonsense, they reclassified Persimmon Hollow as a restaurant with bar so all of a sudden it’s back to normal.    You don’t have to actually order food from outside     Just the fact of the reclassification does the job.   Also our favorite Greek restaurant, Santorini’s is also now open so I think everywhere we could go before, is back in business.   I check Moonrise at Palm Coast and they to are back to normal.   What more could a guy want. 

But all’s not back to normal, alas.   It took several hours to get a simple blood draw in prep for a visit with the doc for a routine annual checkup.   I am right at the point that says I’m giving up totally on going to doctors for routine checkups.   It’s just too much of a hassle.  If something goes wrong, then I’ll call them but other than that – leave well enough alone.   My bride is not necessarily onboard the program but…………
